Over the past several years much has been said and written about the number of evagelical youth leaving the Church upon going away to school or work. The number expressed in percentages is around 85%. This may vary a few pp either way, the last poll I saw was Barna and it was 85. For several weeks now my pastor has been preaching on decisions vs conversions. To quote him; "our youth make a decision, attend church services 3 or 4 times a week, go to the inner cities and pass out tracts, take youth choir trip on spring break and take up canned food for the homeless. Yet when they get to college and sit under a couple of liberal professors for a semester or two they come home with great discovery that Jesus Christ is not the only way" My question is. Has our zeal for numbers clouded or minds as to what real conversions are. People can talk someone into making a decision but only the Holy Spirit can cause repentance that leads to salvation.
